Episode 82: This week Claire Maxwell speaks with Carlton Mackey, creator of 50 Shades of Black, a project that examines the relationship between skin tone and sexuality in trying to shape one’s identity. Through several different platforms, the project offers visual artwork and conversations among artists, scholars, and the public to create dialogue about diversity and what it really means.
